       Liubov Sergeyevna Popova was born April 24, 1889 near Moscow. She grew up in an enlightened merchant family with a strong interest in art, especially Italian Renaissance painting. At eleven years old she began art lessons at home and in 1907 she studied art with S. Zhukovskiy. Then in 1908 – 1909 she attended the art school of Konstantin Yuonand Ivan Dudin. Popova traveled widely to investigate and learn from diverse styles of painting, but it was the ancient Russian Icons and 15th and 16th century Italian painters, Giotto and others which at first interested her the most.

Top Ten Cubist Painters

Top Ten Cubist Painters

       Cubism is an art movement in the 20th century that completely changed European painting. Instead of viewing and displaying subjects from one fixed angle, Cubism breaks the subject up into a multiplicity of facets. This way several different aspects/faces of the subject can be displayed simultaneously. Cubism presented a new reality in painting. Inspired by Paul Cezanne and Georges Seurat, Cubism found its roots in the collaboration between Pablo Picasso (Spain) and Georges Braque (France) between 1907 and 1914. The Cubist movement itself was not very long-lived or widespread, but it did have a massive influence on latter 20th century art movements such as precisionism, futurism and to some degree also expressionism.

  1. Pablo Picasso

    Picasso’s father, José Ruiz y Blasco, was himself a painter and for most of his life was a professor of art at Spanish colleges. It is from Don José that Picasso learned the basics of formal academic art training – figure drawing, and painting in oil. Although Picasso attended art schools throughout his childhood, often those his father taught at, he never finished his college level course of study at the Royal Academy of San Fernando in Madrid, leaving after less than a year.

  1. Weeping Woman (1937)

    To quote Will Durant, “…as the painter who sees, in the person whom he paints, not merely the individual character and feature, but some universal quality and permanent reality for whose unveiling the individual is only a symbol and a means. The secret of genius, then, lies in the clear and impartial perception of the objective, the essential, and the universal.” It is this very quality which Picasso is able to achieve in his works and the reason why he is regarded as one of  the greatest painters of all time.

           Les Demoiselles is a very famous cubist piece by Pablo Picasso, and is a very important piece, as it is considered the first work of cubist art. It is a very provocative piece, depicting five prostitutes in a brothel. Two of the women are wearing tribal masks, tribal images having a big influence on Cubism.

  50. The Minotauromachy

    Considered by many to be the most important… There is again a similar tripartite structure to both compositions and the principal protagonists are almost identical. The flower girl holding a candle, the Minotaur advancing from the right, and the enjoined figures of the wounded horse and Marie-Thérèse in a bullfighter’s costume, are all very closely related to those in the drawing. The bullfighter’s costume is a recurrence of the costume worn by the figure on the right in the drawing, and its wearer, Marie-Thérèse, appears on the left of the drawing, cryptically personified as the wounded horse in the bullfight. There are also similarities between the Minotaur with the concealed bull on the far right of the drawing, and there are further similarities between the horses which occupy the central positions in each of the two compositions. Furthermore, the Christ-like figure climbing the ladder in “Minotauromachy” relates closely to the crucified figure on a ladder in the drawing, in each case the figure is identifiable as Picasso, in a Christ-like alter ego.
